Even if your brother wrongs you seven times a day, and seven times asks forgiveness, you must forgive him. Luke 17:4
I think the adage “Forgive and Forget” is untrue. Forgiveness is complicated. What if we truly desire to forgive, but are still experiencing the attached emotions—anger, hurt, etc.?
We can choose to forgive, but we need help, spiritual help, with the emotional part. We may never actually forget the incident, but we can experience resolution and peace following forgiveness.
The ancient wise person who said, “To err is human, but to forgive is divine” had it right.
